It is always such an honor to make photos for people when there is sentimental value involved. Sarah reached out to me right after finding out her grandma was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She shared with me how much her grandma has always loved photos of her dancing and how she wanted to shoot some more photos in her honor. As we brainstormed some ideas, she let me know that her grandma has always loved sunflowers. It sounded like the perfect symbol for a shoot like this. I've read that sunflowers are "Gifts of radiant warmth, sunflowers are the happiest of flowers, and their meanings include loyalty and longevity. They are unique in their ability to provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrance, an attribute which mirrors the sun and the energy provided by its heat and light."
This shoot was full of joy and sun! My hope is that some of this joy can run off and brighten Sarah's time with her grandma and bring a smile to both of their faces. Enjoy!
